better than we were and have been for a few yearses now. and yet, today, in texas, another round has just begun of unpaving the roads. seriously. in four counties in south texas, and two counties in west texas, today is the day state started converting paved roads into gravel roads. texas state department of trn transportation made the announcement last month. "since paving roads is too expensive and there's not enough funding to repave them all, our only other option to make them safer is to turn them into gravel roads. t "it's not like they're saying gravel roads are better, figured out grounds on which gravel roads are pleasing or sound, or get the most out of your performance car. those are not artisanal roads. roads in texas are being unpaved because pavement is something we cannot afford there anymore. in this part of texas it's happening because of the "sharp increase in heavy traffic due to the oil boom." the damage related to energy development has become so extensive that state and local authorities lack the funding to make all the repairs. the problem increased heavy equipment

department announced they were going to sue the state of texas over the voter i.d. law texas republicans put into place after the supreme court decision. a federal court in texas is reviewing the justice department's complaint. while that review goes on, the voter i.d. law in texas is going into effect. there's a fascinating little test case that's going to play out there this week. this is the ballot for a local city council race in the city of edinburg, texas. this tiny local election is going to be the first one in the state that will be held under the state's strict new voter i.d. laws. opponents of the law are planning to watch that election very closely to see what effect this new voter i.d. law has on the ability of minority residents to turn out and vote. the fight is also on right now in north carolina. that state's new voter suppression law is seen as even more draconian than the one passed in texas that the federal government is suing over right now. the north carolina law, and all of the national coverage of that law, has kicked up a wave of opposition in the state. last thursday

right. that was texas senator ted cruz telling jonathan carl that he is, in fact, a natural born citizen, therefore eligible to be president. cruz went the extra mile to release his birth certificate to the dallas morning news which reported cruz was born in canada to an american mother and has dual citizenship. and following that report, senator cruz released a statement renouncing his canada citizenship. he says now the dallas morning news that i have dual citizenship, i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should only be an american. it's odd for me to say about a guy who i disagree with on many points, he couldn't be more right. the irony, of course, it mirrors the phony scenario of those who have been arguing to this day that president obama was born overseas, mostly in kenya and not eligible to be president. he was born to an american mother in the state of hawaii that was actually in america, by the way, but the birthers are all but silent when it comes to ted cruz. cruz has already visited the important presidential primary states of iowa and south carolina an
. then concern about the recent roll back, especially in north carolina and texas and florida of voting rights and that we have to make sure we are diligent and stay on it. so that the dream, have we made progress? absolutely. but we still have a lot of work to do and we have got to make sure that as reverend lowrie said we came to commemorate and we have to agitate in our districts and that is important and dr. king would want us to continue to move on and work hard as john lewis says and still have the comeback. i think we are feeling the effects today of a southern strategy put together by richard nixon some time ago to dilute the power of african-american legislators. we have less power in the sense we are not in houses where we are in the majority. and so we have got to figure out how we work that and we need people to come out to vote like never before, especially in local elections, city council and state assemble and state senates and mayoral election p.m. that makes the difference on the bigger ends so the african-americans have the power that dr. king dream was all about. >> the drea
psychiatrist admitted he opened fire at the texas army base in 2009, killing 13 people and wounding 30 others. casey stiegel is live at fort hood, texas. casey, hasan still not cross-examining his witnesss? >> reporter: , no, patti ann, he is isn't. i was in the courtroom. i had a chance to study him. he looked down at the table most of the time. when the judge addresses him he is very respectful, yes, ma'am, no, ma'am. but as these witnesses are giving gut-wrenching testimony, he mostly stairs at the table and doesn't make any kind of eye contact with them. major hasan had a relatively bizarre interruption of court yesterday. it came during some of the most horrific testimony we heard thus far. the sergeant who supervised the medical facility where the shooting happened was on the stand. she was in middle of describing a scene of non-stop gunshots and chaos, when hasan randomly interrupted and objected asked please be reminded she was under oath. clearly she was under oath. she had already sworn in. so everyone kind of moved on. when it comes to the cross-examination of these witnesses not r
lee dimaggio may be heading to texas or canada. that alert did not specify why. but obviously the search has crossed state lines at this point. >> so, obviously, border security is pretty critical, but what are they doing about this notion that he could be headed to texas. i mean, where are the texas authorities on this? >> reporter: well, a texas affiliate, at this time, we are still waiting for an update from sheriff's officials. they gave us their last press conference around 9:00 last night. we're still waiting to hear back, but, obviously, communication must be going on to make sure that this search is thorough, to hopefully find these children. because it's been more than 30 hours now. this started sunday evening. and if they left before that, they can be far beyond california, possibly not even in the u.s. at this time. but we are still waiting for those updates. >> okay. i want to put up those two pictures again, candice, if i can. and i'm just going to repeat what the issue is here. we've got hanna and ethan. their mother was murdered and another child, who is yet to
'm glad the justice department is moving forward in texas. i want them to do that in north carolina and any other state that has put in place these laws that are really going to be damaging to people's right to vote. >> and that's the real point. people have been voting for years with their i.d. there's been no widespread fraud. yet you come in with a new program. it is a solution looking for a problem rather than a problem in need of a solution. and one of the people who just filed a lawsuit other in north carolina's voting suppression law is 92-year-old rosenel eaton who has compared to the literacy test she faced during the crowe era. listen to this 92-year-old. >> here i am at 92 years old doing the same battling. we need more, not less, access to the ballot. at the age of 92, i am fed up and fired up. >> 92 years old saying it's the same thing she's fed up and fired up standing there with reverend william barber. people are calling them out on this. >> that's right. and you know what? i am so proud to be a north carolinian. she really is fed up. >> i think that -- and the thing
. and the department of justice today announced they will sue the state of texas in order to stop texas' voter i.d. law. the justice department says it plans its challenge under the part of the voting rights act that was not gutted by the supreme court earlier this summer. in a statement, attorney general eric holder said this represents the department's latest action to protect voting rights but will not be our last. the federal government is going to wade into texas to stop what texas is going on voter suppression. if the administration says texas won't be the last place that happens, what will be the next place that happens? north carolina's new move s fwes voting rights are called the most radical state-wide changes since the voting rights act was passed in 1965. does north carolina need federal intervention in order to protect its citizens' right to vote in joining us now, congressman g.k. butterfield, represents elizabeth city where we are tonight. he's a former voting rights attorney, himself. former north carolina supreme court justice. congressman butterfield, thank you for being here tonight.
